Review

This short overview of the life, work, and criticism of Graham Greene
provides a useful introduction for undergraduates or the general reader.
It touches on many of the most important topics one might raise about
Greene, but given its short length and his long life and large output,
it can do no more than outline them in the barest way.

The book is divided into four sections. Section 1, the biography,
covers the high points of Greene’s career. Next comes a chronological
list of the author’s works—a handy reference source. The final two
sections, one on critical evaluations and the other an annotated
bibliography, also serve as quick references and provide guidance for
those wishing to broaden their knowledge.
